I CAN GET 3.2 ON STOCK VOLTAGE WITH THIS SETUP, BUT TEMPS ARE 60-70 LOAD. TO HOT FOR ME.
CAN ANYONE RECOMMEND A HEATSINK/FAN THAT WILL TAKE ME TO 50 LOAD WITH 3.2. OR FOR THAT MATTER JUST
A GOOD HEATSINK. - THANK YOU
The difference between good thermal paste and great thermal paste is maybe 3 - 5 C.
I use Arctic Silver AS5. Also tried AS Ceramique. No detectable difference. Also had no detectable difference before and after the AS5 "cured".
GA-EP35-DS3P, Q6600 OC'd to 3.6 GHz, TRUE/Scythe S_Flex, Antec 900.
Load temps 61 C - 65 C.
The Xigmatek HDT-s1283/1284 HS is the best you will get for your money. As for thermal paste, I use Arctic Cooling MX-2 because it is supposed to perform the best and, more importantly, I find it to be the best thermal paste I have ever spread.
all-copper HS's are expensive and over-rated. Choose an HDT type like the Xigmatek or OCZ for the best performance. I got AC MX-2 also but only cuz it was convenient and not generic. Most of them would do fine.
AS5 is really good but Shin Etsu X23-7783D is the best. Also the Noctua NH-U12P is a very good cooler if you can afford it. If that is too much then the Xigmatck that The_Blood_Raven mentioned is a very good choice as well.
